HC Deb 19 March 1896 vol 38 c1342

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate, if he will state when the original design for the breakwater at Port Ness, Island of Lewis, was prepared, and by whom?


The original design of the first pier or breakwater constructed at Port of Ness was prepared by Messrs. D. and T. Stevenson, Civil Engineers, in January, 1883, but another and more extensive breakwater, designed by Messrs. D. and C. Stevenson, Civil Engineers, in 1891, is now in course of construction. But, the latter design has been restricted for the reasons I have already stated to the hon. Member in reply to a previous question on the same subject.
